Man and Boy was written by Terence Rattigan in 1960's. Rattigan was a famous playwright of his era who faced a lot of professional and personal ups and downs throughout his life. Rattigan found his initial success through the play "French without Tears" in 1936. His next write was a satirical play by the name "After the Dance" which was brought to stage in 1939. During World War II, Rattigan served as tail gunner in Royal Air Force. With all his experience, he took leave from Air Force after the war and settled down with his career as a playwright. His most famous plays were written after the war, some of them include; "The Winslow Boy", "The Deep Blue Sea" and "Separate Tables".
During late 50's Rattigan's plays were starting to be considered as old fashioned and infamous. Man and Boy was one of the plays Rattigan wrote as an attempt to return to the theatre world. The play was majorly based on his personal experiences and the inspiration from the Depression-Era of New York during 30's. The play narrates the story of a tyrannical father and his gentle and kind hearted son. Rattigan narrates his own personal experience with his father and the unhappy marriage of his parents in the play. There is also the touch of homosexuality in the play, which was also drawn from Rattigan's personal experience as being a gay.
Man and Boy was an attempt to revive his career as a playwright and was based on his very personal experiences. It is clearly visible as why he gave up writing for seven years after the failure of Man and Boy. Heartbroken, Rattigan took a long break during which he was diagnosed with leukemia. Waiting for his death, Rattigan spent two years of his life in despair when he miraculously started to recover. With the improvement in health, Rattigan planned on returning to life. He started writing again and by the time of his death he became known as one of the major playwrights once again.
The show is going to be revived once again as the Broadway production of it is due in 2011, featuring the Tony Award winning actor Frank Langella. If you want to watch the revival of a play by the legendary playwright of all times, don't forget to get your Man and Boy tickets today!
